Cherish Menzo - JEZEBEL

Registrations for members are closed.

JEZEBEL is a dance produc­tion inspired by the Video Vixens: provoca­tive female models who appeared in hip-hop videos on MTV in the late 1990s. The Vixens danced scantily clad in music dominated by men. However, their influence was great: it was often the Vixens who determined the aesthetic of the videos and the popula­rity of the artist. They were hypersen­sual, strong and indepen­dent.

The dancer Cherish Menzo refuses to be defined by others in JEZEBEL. She navigates the landscape of hip-hop culture, searching for ways to claim her image for herself. Can Jezebel deconstruct the contro­ver­sial stereo­type associ­ated with the black “hip-hop honey”?
